Medicated Money Is Hemorrhaging Money!

"Finance is the art of passing money from hand to hand until it finally disappears." -Robert W. Sarnoff

With our upcoming new employment and move across the country, we are currently hemorrhaging money from all possible gaps. We knew going into the month of August that things were going to get a little tight, but this is ridiculous. I am constantly online checking accounts, sliding money from here to there to still try to maximize interest rates (why try!?!) As of right now, the blood loss is somewhere around $5k with everything. Include our normal monthly expenses; it seems that everyone has their fingers in an almost empty cookie jar.

From paying 2 rents plus security deposits to buying supplies to move, the damage is mounting! The good news is that we are still afloat, but we are taking on water fast! Hopefully, we can dig ourselves out before we completely sink!


  • Everyone feels like this when they are moving across town. Your feelings are amplified, moving across the country. Just breathe deep and stay focused it is short lived.

    You're going to make it and be better off for it in the future. That's just my take. Anything that makes us spend teaches us frugality for another day.

  • Thanks for the support D!

    You definitely are right in staying calm and not getting too stressed out! Life is just too short! We are trying to look at this move as a fun adventure that we hope we never have to experience again!
